Tribal leaders want Minnesota law for autopsy objections

Tribal leaders want to change Minnesota law to give families a legal path to object to autopsies on religious grounds, after disputes involving two Ojibwe tribe members. Tadd Johnson, an attorney for the Mille Lacs Band, told Minnesota Public Radio News that a change could give families an opportunity to file an objection and get a hearing before a judge.

Last month, a county judge blocked two autopsies on members of the Fond du Lac Band and Mille Lacs Band who died in auto accidents. The families had asked the judge to prevent the autopsies on religious grounds.
